    How many nests could/should I have?

    I installed my Nest Thermostat a few months ago and so far I love it.

    I have one heating/cooling zone in my house and a gas fireplace in the living room. I put my nest on the house's HVAC system currently to control the heat (I have not use the AC with the nest yet).

    We use a manual on/off switch to control the gas fireplace when we need it in the living room to supplement the houses heat as well as enhancing the comfort of the room with a fireplace.



    Does it make sense to use a nest to control the gas fireplace?

    How will the two nests work together? or do they work together?

    Also Can I use another nest in my basement to help balance the heat in my house by providing the temp/motion sensor... so if the nest in the basement detects someone there... it could boost the heat a little without raising the whole house temp to high. So in in other words if I'm not in the basement... then 70 is comfortable temp in the house... but if I'm working in the basement... then raising the temp to 72 enables my basement to be comfortable. Can Nest do this?

    Thanks,

    Nick

    I would not use a Nest to control a fireplace. You could always install a remote control that is designed for a fire place like this one from Amazon Skytech 1001-A Fireplace Remote Control On/Off

    Nest cannot do this. In order to be able to do this you would need a zoned system with dampers in the ductwork.
